England star Dom Young pulled over by police in Australia for bizarre reason

Dom Young has left Newcastle Knights to join Sydney Roosters for 2024.

England star Dom Young is in the early stages of a brilliant NRL career with the flying winger having led the scoring charts in 2023, however, he’s run into some trouble with the police down under for a surprising reason.

The 22-year-old has been a sensation since he made the switch from Huddersfield Giants to Newcastle Knights, even earning himself a move from the Knights to NRL powerhouse club Sydney Roosters.

So far in his first season for the Tricolours, he has scored nine tries in ten games which follows on from his 25 in 25 last year. Across his four seasons in the competition, he’s scored at an impressive strike rate and bagged 52 in 61.

Young missed out on the Roosters’ Round 15 win over Parramatta with a hamstring injury, however, he was still busy but for the wrong reasons with the police pulling him over in New South Wales last week and it’s been revealed why.

The Australian Daily Mail have reported that England star Dom Young was pulled over by police in the city Maroubra last week regarding an outstanding ambulance bill.

Living in the UK, ambulance bills are not something that we consider but down under that seemingly isn’t the case. The 22-year-old was taken by ambulance to the hospital after the Roosters pre-season trial game against Manly back in February.

Young was subject to a crusher tackle and had to leave the field in a neck brace which meant that he missed out on the club’s trip to Las Vegas but it’s also come back to bite him now with this police matter.

The total amount of the unpaid bill hasn’t been revealed but the confusion came from the fact that Dom Young believed that the bill had been sent to the Roosters when it has in fact been mailed to him. As such he had an outstanding bill against his name, meaning the police pulled him over.

It’s now been confirmed that the Roosters will foot the bill for Young with the rules in New South Wales being that residents must pay 51% of the the cost when they need an ambulance.

Young will be hoping for a return to fitness now and is expected to be named in the squad for the Roosters upcoming game, however, he could be a late game-time call.
